Need an excuse to treat yourself today? Here you go. Dark, premium quality chocolate has antioxidant flavanols that reduce the effects of UV light on your skin. It also has been reported to reduce wrinkles by improving circulation. Additional benefits are that it makes you feel good and hence helps fight stress.
Green Leafy Vegetables
Remember Popeye, the cartoon sailor who stayed strong to the finish because he ate his spinach? Turns out that is one important lesson to learn. Green leafy veggies like spinach have UV-light-damage fighting anti-oxidants that will keep you looking green longer.
Love berries? You really should eat more of too because they are loaded with antioxidants and vitamin C that fight those wrinkle causing radicals and UV-light-damage. The darker the berry, the higher the antioxidant content, so go wild for your desserts (hello blueberries!).
Tomatoes (and watermelons) are rich in lycopene, a nutrient that acts as an internal sunblock and prevents damage from exposure to the sun’s UV rays. Plus they are also rich in Vitamin C, which promotes the production of skin supporting collagen, thereby keeping your skin firm.
Apart from reducing your stress levels and giving you a hug from the inside, green tea is an excellent anti-ageing elixir because it contains a good amount of the antioxidant called flavonoids that protect against diseases and cell damage from toxins.
High in Vitamin E (the skin vitamin), almonds will give you the soft and supple skin your desire. Try snacking on them daily to give yourself the day’s recommended vitamin E dose, thus ensuring good health for your skin cells.
Oats are rich in carbs and carbs are good for the skin! We’re not kidding, we’re actually asking you to keep eating carbs (healthy carbs that is) because carbs increase the production of serotonin, your happy hormone. And a happy body is a healthy body and a happy, healthy body always radiates with youthfulness.
Oranges (and other colourful fruits)
Oranges are rich in Vitamin C, the nutrient that regulates collagen production. Plus they keep you hydrated. Plus they taste good. In general, having a lot of colourful fruits in your diet is good for your skin because you’re getting a lot of essential nutrients in.
I hope these healthy foods will make you healthier in the coming year!
